    well i don't think it needs to be deframated it says in one drive i have like 277890mb of memory (i think that's the windows 98 SE drive cuz i can't alter it much) and there is one that says free with 7 mb in it.

    What dylunio suggested is always a good idea, whether you *think* your drive needs it or not, particularly if you plan on resizing your 98SE partition to put Linux on it.
